To be honest, I haven’t heard great things about those organizations.  It’s not so complicated – here is a checklist.  You have to do a little googling to find everything in your area, but almost everything is available online to print in advance.  The annoying part is going places and having to wait, which you will have to do regardless.  You can start with your social security card, and while you wait for your new one, go ahead and get the paper work ready for the rest.  At the bank, it was as easy as just showing them my wedding license, they made a copy and then did the rest.

For all of these, bring your wedding license, photo ID and the documentation that you are changing.  It’s not a bad idea to get a bunch of copies of your wedding license in advance so you can do things by mail.

  • Social Security
  • Driver’s License
  • Banks
  • Passport
  • Any sort of school or work
  • Lease/House Title
  • Car title
  • Health/Car/Home Insurance (might be as easy as calling the company, they may ask you to send in your wedding license).

Everything else you can do as it comes up – i.e. doctors, magazine subscriptions, etc. – as you see your old name, you can just call and let them know.  Carry a marriage license with you for a while and once you have your new driver’s license you won’t even really need that.

Hope that helps, let me know if you have any questions!  I think you can do it on your own and save the money – go get a mani/pedi with that money you just saved!

I agree with hermitcrab. I’m about 80% done with the changes. The two most important are SS and DMV. I went to both in one day and it took me 2 hours total. Everything after that is easier and can be done over fax/phone/etc.

I have yet to update my passport. I need to do that, one credit card, and my 2 student loans and then I’ll be done! It’s pretty easy..I don’t think these type of programs are worth $30 in my opinion.

I agree – it really isn’t that hard.

Don’t forget frequent flier programs! I didn’t do mine in time and lost a few hundred miles from my credit card!

Also, scan you marriage license.  Alot of places will let you do it over email!

It seriously isn’t that hard or complicated. The major stuff I had done in less than 5 days.

I’ve been stressing about this as well and ran across the website on pinterest a few weeks ago. Thanks for the list @hermitcrab
